We've got Steven Splaine, who has written a book on Web testing. How do you do testing of Web applications? And he's just written a book which is absolutely phenomenal, layperson's terms, a lot of examples, and he's going to be with us on April 4 to sum up our season before we get into our next season and talk about Web testing. So please join us for that. Again, I'll give you my Web site address, www.qualityplustech.com. We've got courses, a lot of information, a lot of free information, articles, downloads, and we'd love to hear from you about what you think of the show. Stan and Peter, this has been great. We can go out to 12207 and get the best testing standards, the best function point standards, the best of many different types of standards. And I think that a lot of people have gained a lot from listening to this show. Stan, in summary, what would you like to leave our audience with?
Stan: Number one, have clear business objectives for implementing standards. Do it in a well-disciplined, orderly manner, and you should be able to increase the quality of your product and reduce costs. That's my message. Make sure you have a clear business objective for implementing standards.
Carol: Good. Excellent. And Peter, do you have anything you'd like to send away to our audience?
Peter: Well, I hope people are becoming a little more, or a little less frightened of standards. And I'd like people to consider them as documented best practices that have been proven. And also, we haven't mentioned it, but in fact, many companies have excellent internal procedures, and these standards can be adapted to suit you. So we'd like people to give them a try.
Carol: And I think you've just demystified standards geeks. You're not standards weenies, you're not standards geeks, you are down to earth people who are building better software. And I appreciate you being on the show. Until next week, when we come back with Elisabeth Hendrickson and how to evaluate software tools, this is Carol Dekkers saying we'll e-talk to you next week.
